of new jersey and andrew cuomo of new york along with senators and house members from those states blasted house speaker john boehner today for putting off a vote on aid for victims of superstorm sandy. we have three reports on all this tonight. first, elaine quijano on the storms of protest over sandy aid that got action. elaine? >> reporter: good evening to you, anthony, well, here at the statehouse in new jersey, republican governor chris christie said the people of his state are being used as political pawns just two months after sandy hit. >> 66 days and counting. shame on you. shame on congress. >> reporter: superstorm sandy caused over $36 billion in damage in new jersey. governor christie says he was assured by congressional leaders that the aid package would be put to a vote. but house speaker boehner pulled the legislation and did not return christie's phone calls. >> disaster relief was something that you didn't play games with. >> reporter: do you feel betrayed right now, governor? >> yes. if the people of new jersey feel betrayed today by those who did this in the hous
27 billion. this bill was nor $60 billion. that's the number that governor cuomo, governor christie and player bloomberg need. just having a vote doesn't mean much unless it's for the full $60 million. i don't know how the speakler do that if he follows his policy saying you have to have a majority of the majority. it's very difficult to get anything out of that conference, especially when you're dealing with the northeast. if the speaker can do it, fine. we've been down this path now for the last month where i've been assured time and again everything was fine. i was in with the speak with her governor cuomo, governor christie was with the speaker, i met with eric cantor a number of times and as far as i can tell he's been entire live straight with us. as late as last night he was trying to get the bill on the calendar. if this is not delivered and very quickly, republicans have no trouble finding new york when this comes to raising money and i would just say anyone from new york or new jersey who contributes one penny to congressional republicans after this should have their head
of the damage claims. governor cuomo and i have spent hours and hours speaking to individual members of the house and senate, to answer their questions. we worked with president obama and his administration and satisfied them of the urgent need of the $60 billion aid package. this was good enough for 62 united states senators of both parties to vote for this package. this was good enough for majority of the house of representatives. it overcame all the factual challenges, it just could not overcome the toxic interl politics of the house majority. finally, new jersey and new york are perennially among the most generous states in the nation to our fellow states. we vote for disaster relief for other states in need, we are donor states, spending -- sending much more to washington, d.c. than we ever get back in federal spending. despite this history of unbridled generosity, in our hour of desperate need, we have been left waiting for help, six times longer than the victims of katrina, with no end in sight. americans are tired of the palace intrigue and political partisanship of this cong
, including governor christie, a republican, and governor cuomo, a democrat, should be deeply disappointed and, yes, angry. >> we have a moral obligation to hold this vote. the people are out of their homes. the people who are cold. the people without food. the people who lost their jobs. they don't have time to wait. >> to ignore it, to ignore the plight of millions of american citizens, unprecedented, they should reconsider or hang their heads in shame. >> for us in the northeast to be treated this way is unconscionable. i would ask the speaker to reconsider. i have never been angrier than i am right now. i'm usually proud of this house. tonight i am ashamed. shame on you, mr. speaker. >> a spokesman for john boehner said he is committed to seeing the bill passed this month. >>> it's not just washington where new policies are going into effect, in states across the land new laws are on the books and in effect impacting everything from social media to the minimum wage and more. in maryland, there are big changes when it comes to same-sex marriage which is now legal in that state. pete william
, governor cuomo and i will not stop fighting together to see that justice is done and our citizens suffering is finally addressed by this congress. >> that news conference wrapping up just a couple minutes ago. happening after governor christie spoke with president obama about the lack of a spending solution for hurricane sandy victims. here's what's some house members had to say about the failure of oufer republican leadership to bring a standing aid bill to the floor before the end of the session. this is from earlier today. >> the fact is as congresswoman lowey said within 10 days of can treeno $60 billion was appropriated. that number ended up going well over $100 billion. there is now nine weeks and nothing has been appropriated at all by this congress from the people of new york, new jersey, connecticut, long island which i represent. and the fact is that over the last five, six, seven weeks we did everything that the republican leadership asked us to do. governor cuomo came down. i was at the meeting. he met with the speaker. governor christie came down, he met with the speaker. mayor
in my speech last night. governor christie, governor cuomo, blame yor bloomberg we met with eric cantor, who by the way kept his word throughout there, and the bill was drawn. it was supposed to come up thunderstorm this morning. and last night the speaker of the house of representatives walked off the floor, didn't even give us the courtesy of a notice. he told's aide to the majority leader who told us, we end ended up telling -- so there's some dysfunction in the republican leadership. for some reason the speaker is taking it out on new york, long island, new jersey. >>> we want to continue this conversation, but i want to go to the house floor, congressman steny hoyer is speaking about it. >> we had to borrow that money, yes, just as if the dpurns went out and the temperature was at zero, you would immediately replace the furnace to keep the family safe and borrow the money to do so. yes, we would have had to repay it, and we would. thisably would have allocated $6 mill quote-unquote for a food banks to make sure that people in the richest country on the face of the earth have some s
case on substance. we have all read the information that came down from governor christie and cuomo line by line, this is all about people who in dire straits who are, who have lost their homes and businesses. 100,000 in new jersey have filed for unemployment insurance attributable to super storm sandy. it is devastation the likes of which we have never seen in our part of the country. we do have support. the amendment will be offered for about $33 billion to get us to the $60 billion. >> chairman rogers will offer $ 27 billion amendment. following his amendment i will offer the $33 billion. that will make the $60 billion, the round number. i feel the assurances we had from both the speaker and the majority leader cantor are ironclad. we will proceed. this recognizes the hard ache and misery both of our states or the region that suffered which has been as the governor emphasized, at the press conference the last hour or two, it has been over 66 days. >>gregg: the bickering over the hurricane sandy aid bill continues on capitol hill. >> congress last night avoided sending the finance
delegations governor cuomo, governor christie, mayor bloomberg, we were promised this vote was coming up. every penny asked for was documented. every document we asked we gave them. we were told everything is fine. it was actually on the house website. the bill was going to be voted on. last night we started to hear that maybe it would be pulled. maybe wouldn't be held. we confronted john boehner on the floor and asked them. wait until the fiscal cliff vote is over. we'll take care of it. we were told 99% certain. no one even told us, the speaker walked off the floor. told an aide to the majority leader that congress was finished. there were no votes and they come back and told us. i'm not taking this as personal offense. i'm talking about the thousands of people in my district, hundreds of thousands of people throughout the new york, new jersey area. within 10 days after katrina, $60 billion was appropriated. nine weeks after sandy, not one penny has been appropriated. let me just make this one point. these republicans have no problem finding new york when they're out raising millions o
. governor cuomo and i are as frustrated as to people can be. unlike the people in congress, we have actual responsibilities. >> a fellow new jersey lawmaker was inviting the house speaker to see how ravaged the area still is 66 days after sandy struck. >> i would ask him to drive through see bright new jersey. a town of less than 2000 people. the business district is totally destroyed. speaker boehner says the house will vote on $9 billion for flood insurance on friday and another vote for additional assistance will be held by january 15. chris christie says that's just two more weeks people are left without a place to live. >> the fiscal cliff deal coverage continues night on world news. i spoke to diane sawyer about the fiscal cliff and what else they're working on. we have been following the fiscal cliff deal. what is in that deal? >> the latest on washington and what an uproar there has been over hurricanes and the relief. we will have the latest on the fist fight going on. >> it was great seeing the rose bowl parade coverage yesterday because and the storm was back. >> we l
, governor cuomo, we met with eric cantor, who by the way, kept his word throughout this, and the bill was drawn. we were promised that it would come up yet. we provided every penny of documentation, and the speaker of the house of representatives walked off the floor, didn't even give us a courtesy of a notice, told as ann -- -- so there's some dysfunction in the leadership, the speaker for some reason is taking it out on new york, long island and new jersey, speaker boehner is the one. he walked off the floor, refused to tell us why, refused to give under the circumstances any indication of warning whatsoever, and eric cantor met with us throughout the week, he devised the strategy how to bring it to the floor to make it acceptable to let the republicans who wanted to vote against parts of the bill, they could do that, but the bill was going to pass. the bottom line is here. the republican speaker walked off the floor without allows the vote. i'm just saying these people have no problem finding new york, these republicans, when they're trying to raise money. they raised millions in n
and this bill gets passed. he has been in close contact with governor cuomo of new york. he has been talking about this with people who are concern and not only the folk who is live in new york and new jersey, but lawmakers are who are expressing anger that it didn't move through the house. they live in the areas that were most deeply affected. peter king who is from new york had harsh words for speaker boehner. speaker boehner's office released a statement saying he is dedicated to moving it through by the end of the month. we will have to see if that happens and there is a lot of pressure on him to do that. in terms of the other things they will be focused on, he still has to name a number of his cabinet positions. one of the names that has been floated, normer senator chuck hegel and he got criticism for comments he made and president obama signalled that that criticism has not dissuaded him. >> from honolulu, thank you very much. >> how is it possible that this is a political issue. we are here today and we can vote on this. the votes are clearly there. >> up next, more on the out rage o
for less drama than speaker boehner managed to anger chris christie, andrew cuomo, the entire northeast constituency and then some. now i guess he's had a change of heart. is that right? >> he drew a lot of bipartisan fire. and peter king after firing some broad sides at speaker boehner and who on the floor suggest that republicans stop donating money to the republican party until this thing gets straightened out as a means of retribution, peter king emerged from that meeting with other tri-state area lawmakers and says what's done a done. my anger this morning was a lifetime ago. apparently the speaker patched things up to a sufficient agree with peter king. i don't know about the democrats from that area. with his offer now to put a bill on the floor for $9 billion. a down payment sof $9 billion, the most urgent need is flood insurance for those folks on the coast of new jersey, new york, and connecticut. put that on the floor on friday. just a day after the new congress begins. and pledges to do the $51 billion on january 15th. here's the problem all along. the speaker did not want t

of the house was provided by governor cuomo, governor christie, merritt blob, everybody played -- mayor bloomberg, everybody played by the rules except tonight. indefensible. we have a moral obligation. the people are out of their homes, the people who are cold, the people without food, the people who have lost their jobs, they don't have the time to wait. we cannot just walk away from our responsibilities. >> and the senate had passed a $60.4 billion sandy disaster aid bill last week. the current session comes to an end today after the new congress gets sworn in. legislation does not, though, carry over from session to session. so consideration of an aid bill would have to start all over again if nothing is scheduled before then. joe? >> back and forth on this was whether it's direct aid or not, in the house they said that there were things that were tagged on. things for like aid for fisheries in alaska that they didn't want to see the aid. they want it to be aid that would go directly -- earmarks is what blew this one up. but it's kind of shocking when you realize that that was what,
cuomo came down, i was at the meeting. he met with the speaker. governor kristi came down, mayor bloomberg came down. he met with the majority leader. we were asked to submit detailed document. they all submitted absolute documentation. when we asked is there anything else required? no. you have given us all we need. when the bill came from the senate we were told there was some pork in the bill. that was taken out of the bill. the bill was going to be voted on on the house floor was exactly in compliance what the republican leadership asked us to do. let me just say at this time in my dealings with him, majority leader cantor has been very straightforward, very direct. last night i know that he was fighting to get the bill on the calendar. it was the speaker, for whatever reason, walked off the floor and said that the bill was being pulled. i don't enjoy saying this. i consider myself a personal friend of john boehner. and john boehner personally has been very helpful to me over the years. it pains me to say this. but the fact is dismissive attitude that was shown last night tow
